How to hire and retain staff
Don’t let recruiting and keeping staff be a problem for your business.
Hiring and retaining staff has long been regarded as an issue for small and medium-sized businesses. And despite an increase in the number of people who are unemployed, it’s likely to remain so.
Indeed, in the recent Business Finance Survey 2020, conducted on behalf of the British Business Bank, an issue with recruiting and retaining skilled staff was considered likely to be a ‘significant obstacle’ to 6% of businesses that responded.
High staff turnover can be problematic, especially when the departing employees have specialist skills or strong relationships with customers. Moreover, it may point to deeper issues within the business, such as a lack of opportunity for progression.
